alternate fuel source!

im trying to figure out weather i should run my jeep with a hydrogen genarator and save on gas or modify it to run on propane so i wont need gas at all! gas prices are getting way to high and i dont even like to drive to work anymore let alone hit the trails! from what i hear they both have there pro's and cons but i havent relly seen the hydrogen work.... if i could get some input from people who have experiance with either forms of propulsion it would be greatly apreciated! thank you for your time!

When you get the hydrogen generator to power the Jeep, e-mail me your plans. Last I checked, LPG was more expensive in Alaska than regular unleaded is, so that doesn't make much sense either.

You are going to lose a lot of energy splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. Your electric bill will be insane
